Clinic Gave Staffers Bonuses For More Abortions

A watchdog group sponsored by the U.K.’s Department of Health found staffers at an abortion clinic were paid bonuses for convincing women to go through with abortion procedures. The clinic was tellingly described by staffers as a “cattle market.” Despite the mounting evidence, the company has denied any wrongdoing.

According to Care Quality Commission’s report (which was conducted last year but only recently released) on abortion provider Marie Stopes International’s Maidstone branch, employees “told inspectors that their performance was measured against Key Performance Indicators and were concerned that these indicators included ‘Did Not Proceed,'” reports The Sun.

In other words, staffers’ performance reviews and pay were tied to patients’ follow-through on an abortion; the more abortions you racked up, the better your performance review and pay.

“They felt that this encouraged staff to ensure that patients underwent abortions,” said the report. “Staff were also concerned that the pressurised environment and linking of KPIs to perfomance bonuses meant that there was a culture that worked against patient choice.”
